How can a fairy's blessing be such a curse?

At her birth, Ella of Frell was given a foolish fairy's gift?the "gift" of obedience. Ella must obey any order given to her, whether it's hopping on one foot for a day or chopping off her own head!

But strong-willed Ella does not tamely accept her fate. She goes on a quest, encountering ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, fairy godmothers, and handsome princes, determined to break the curse?and live happily ever after.

Junior Booklovers Contest Winner Katrina, age 14, Winnipeg, MB

I have to say, of all the fantasy and fairytale books and stories that I have read, this one tops the list! Ella Enchanted is a beautifully and elegantly written adaptation of the classic Cinderella story, and really, I must say, it's the best one I've read so far.

The traditional love story, when put into Gail Carson Levine's mind for fantasy, is put in a much more comical sense, and the characters are so lovable! I simply adore Prince Char - he really is charming - and like, the perfect guy! And I really admire Ella for being so heroic - I told you I liked heroes!

This story, like most fairytales, has the perfect "happily ever after" ending and I love it! If anyone asked me for the perfect romantic fairytale, I would suggest this - wait, I already have!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Being a fairy is never easy. Since her birth, Ella of Frell has been the unfortunate recipient of an addled fairy's gift -- the "gift" of obedience. However, spunky Ella does not tamely accept her fate and embarks on a quest to break this curse once and for all! Ella Enchanted is a nice addition to every young reader's collections.
